Designed with the potter in mind, the Shimpo VL Lite Pottery Wheel is a belt-driven lightweight wheel. Light enough to carry yet sturdy enough to throw on. It features a remote pedal, two-piece splash pan, workspace, 100-watt reversible motor and an automatic belt-tensioning system all at a low price! With this wheel, you are not only getting a great price but a great product as well. Quality is not sacrificed in this product. Great for both left-handed and right-handed throwers and for those who may need to move their wheel out of the way from time to time.
The Shimpo RK Whisper Pottery Wheel represents the next generation of potter’s wheels. It has a ½ HP, brushless direct drive DC motor, and a broad speed range for optimum control. What’s more, the motor is also reversible for left-handed and right-handed users. The model is definitely responsive, high torque at all speeds, powerful ANDquiet. We are not exaggerating when we say it is quiet. This wheel is by far the quietest on the market; you can actually throw and hear yourself think at the same time…
Shimpo’s latest design shared the same direct drive components and super quiet ½ HP brushless DC motor with the RK Whisper. They are equally as powerful and quiet. The main difference between the two is the way they look. The VL-Whisper Pottery Wheel has a sturdy tri-pod frame, built in table, remote foot pedal and adjustable legs. The legs can be set for a wheel head height ranging from 18-21” or they can be removed for a tabletop operation instead. Great for easy storage and portability.
